New Laser Measurement for Cylindrical Components

By Marposs Corporation Press Release

Marposs, announced on March 24 the availability of its Aeroel MecLab.X laser micrometer systems. These provide diameter measurements for components such as electric motor shafts, gage or piston pins, hydraulic components or any number of ground or turned parts. The benchtop Meclab.X systems require no PC, making them suitable for the workshop environment.

The Meclab.X systems are designed to be used as an off-line bench-top gauge with the flexibility to check a wide range of components with different shapes and sizes without resetting or remastering.  They measure the part diameter D and the position of the part axis C or the position of the edges of the part--all referred to the center of the measuring field. It checks tolerance by comparing actual dimensions to the programmed limits. In Aeroel technology there is no measuring drift due to changing room temperatures, according to the company.

The Meclab.X systems use a CE-200 operator interface panel with integrated touch sensitive keyboard and large LCD screen. There are three measuring modes – Free Running, On-Comm and Single Shot, and On-Command Continuous. All results are stored in the memory and can be downloaded to a remote computer. The ease of use makes the system easy to learn regardless of operator skill or experience.

Available in two basic styles, the Meclab.X40 has a measuring field of up to 40mm and can measure diameters from 0.06 to 38 mm with a single shot repeatability (±2σ) ± 1.5 μm and with an excellent repeatability (T=1s, ±2σ) of ± 0.07 μm .

The Meclab.X80 has a measuring field of up 80mm and can measure diameters from 0.75 to 78 mm with a single shot repeatability (±2σ) ± 3.5 μm and with an excellent repeatability (T=1s, ±2σ) of ± 0.2 μm. The accuracy of these two basic styles in all the measuring field is for the Meclab .X40 ± 0.5 μm and for the Meclab .X80 ± 2 μm.

Also available is Meclab.X-S featuring a flat granite basement with a precision linear stage to mount holding accessories and to move the part. The Meclab.X-SR version additionally includes a base mounted under the granite base, which contains the electric supply and control circuits for optional accessories.
